Vortrag: In The Global Interest: Peter Watkins, by Example von Gareth Evans (auf Englisch)
In this illustrated talk, Gareth Evans will explore the lessons for life, collective experience and solidarity to be found in the films of Peter Watkins. Using cinema's engagement with time and space as frames in many different ways - aesthetic, personal, social, political and philosophical - he will consider the unique contribution Watkins has made to the medium and the remarkable ongoing relevance of his strategies of cultural resistance to the world as we find it.
